Purchasing school supplies and uniforms can be difficult for families of abused children, who are often struggling to make ends meet. This year, Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center will supply 1,500 kids with 2 uniforms and backpacks stuffed with all the supplies they’ll need. Our community partners, like you, make this possible.
Help us "Fill the Bus" for AISD students in need. Donations needed for students of low income families who cannot afford the supplies needed to start school. Sponsored by: Allen Community Outreach Center.
Supplies will also be collected at the ACO location or click the link for more locations.
